- INTERESTING POINTS ON LEONARDO DA VINCI INVENTIONS -

 

DESIGNS WERE FOR LEONARDO HIMSELF 

Leonardo's notes and designs were mostly to himself, especially as he hadn't finished turning them into an encyclopaedia for others to use.

 

DESIGNS ARE JUST STARTING POINTS

Most of Leonardo's designs were prototypes, which meant they were starting points for an idea to be made to then be developed further. They are not end product designs unless stated by Leonardo.

 

PATENTS: MISINFORMATION TO MISSING INFORMATION

In order to protect his ideas from them being stolen or abused by others, Leonardo left out some information of his designs or put in misinformation. His notes are also written in left-handed mirror writing in order to better protect his ideas further.
